Want to get your drink on without attracting unwanted attention? Get yourself an empty plastic Coke bottle and fill it with 360 Cola, a flavored vodka that mirrors the look and smell of caffeine-injected soda, all while delivering the buzz of intoxicating liquor. Ahhh…twist the cap to refreshness.
If you’re not familiar with 360, you’re probably not the only one. A slightly obscure vodka maker, they also happen to be one of the most eco-obsessed we’ve seen. Not only do they use an energy-efficient manufacturing process, their Quadruple Distilling method ensures not a single bushel of grain goes to waste too. Part of every bottle (85% recycled, by the way) of drink you purchase goes to various environmental causes, so if you’ve been looking to support green-friendly companies, you might as do it with the poison you entertain yourself with.
Buying rum pre-laced with a cola taste is something you can anticipate. Getting that on a bottle of vodka, however, sounds a tad bit off from left field. According to a review (link below), the taste is more in the vein of sweet tea vodkas – sugary, with a hint of peach and apple, punctuated by a cola kick. Sounds really nice.
The 360 Cola Flavored Vodka uses caramel to achieve that brown color, which makes it look like a regular soda beverage when transferred to an innocent-looking Coke bottle. There’s no fizz, but it shouldn’t be that much of a detriment to faking it – you like your soda flat and the hell if anyone will object. According to 360, it’s been designed to taste like old-fashioned sweet and spicy cola drinks of yore.
At $20 a bottle, it sounds like an affordable way to sneak alcohol wherever soda and juices are the only things allowed.
